Benefits and Compensation Committee (BCC) members attain basic knowledge about all employee benefits offered by the College, and analyze and review the benefit programs, taking into consideration diverse needs and budgetary limitations.
The BCC reviews on an annual basis the health related benefits, including health insurance, Flexible Benefits Plan and Emeriti Retirement Health Plan, and advises the President’s Staff regarding any changes that the BCC recommends for the following plan year. BCC will also review as needed the benefits other than health, which currently include life and long term disability insurance, tuition remission and staff paid time off benefits (vacation, emergency/sick leave). This group will play an important role in the implementation of an retention incentive for faculty and staff.
